​I Would Totally Live In This 80 Sq-Ft Custom Cargo Trailer

Bill Southworth loves his Rottweiler, but traveling with his best friend was an issue. Dog-friendly hotels aren't exactly abundant, and when they are, they're not always accommodating. After looking at a slew of travel trailers, Southworth was unimpressed. So he made his own. And I'd move in tomorrow. » 9/26/14 8:45pm 9/26/14 8:45pm

​Cross-Country In A Vintage RV, Day One: The First Day

Finally leaving LA was really difficult, in pretty much every way: emotionally, physically, financially, and maybe even anthropologically. But there's no better balm for a bruised soul than a nice long road trip. Long like trans-continentally, and in a nice 70s-era RV. We've officially been on the road one day, and… » 8/12/14 3:28pm 8/12/14 3:28pm

The Sprinter-Based RV Lifestyle Is One I Can Get Behind

I'm sitting in the back of our bigass Airstream Interstate in one of the plush captain's chairs, typing away on my laptop while Raphael pilots us past West Virginia into rural Ohio. This is the way to be. » 7/22/14 12:26pm 7/22/14 12:26pm

This Old Saab Motorhome Looks Like A Kitty Loaf

If there's an RV more deserving of hugs than this Saab 92H, I haven't met it. This adorable two-stroke Swedish meatball was built in 1963 by Torsten Johansson using the mechanicals of a Saab 92. The Saab 92, you may recall, made all of 28 HP from its two-stroke twin. That's meager for a car, glacial for a rolling… » 6/13/14 11:00pm 6/13/14 11:00pm

This Insane, Off-Roading Motorhome Ran The Baja 1000

Getting publicity in the auto industry is easy. You build something, invite journalists, feed them shrimp and boom! — page inches. But what if you're an also-ran RV company in the late '60s looking to kick the competition in its smug, Winnebago ass? You build a custom, butane-powered motorhome powerful and tough… » 3/07/13 4:13pm 3/07/13 4:13pm

The Boaterhome Is An RV That Shits A Yacht

This is pretty much the coolest thing I have ever seen. For years, I've been frozen by indecision as a grappled over whether to buy a boat or an RV. Now, the choice is clear. I'll have both! » 12/06/12 12:40pm 12/06/12 12:40pm

This Creepy Pop-Up Camper Is Apparently 'Where Girls Become Women'

There's nothing wrong with driving a windowless van or pulling a battered camper, per se. It's when you scrawl things like "Free Candy" and "Where Girls Become Women" on them that they become genuinely creepy. » 8/13/12 12:20pm 8/13/12 12:20pm

How To Build A Teardrop Trailer For Two

As with Costco, bulging SUVs, and childhood obesity, toy haulers bother me. They're just too much. I get why someone might want one: comfort + capacity = fun. But I'll wager that many of us could have a pretty enjoyable experience without schlepping so much stuff around. » 7/27/12 4:00pm 7/27/12 4:00pm

If 1950s Mobsters Went Camping, They'd Take This Cadillac

It's common knowledge that Cadillac cars were once refitted to serve as ambulances (and still bring out the dead as hearses). But did you know that an Eisenhower-era custom shop once turned Caddys into RVs? "Lefty, find us a KOA near Vegas, ya friggin' mook." » 6/06/12 3:00pm 6/06/12 3:00pm

Because nothing says you're wealthy like the world's ugliest RV

Look, I know we're all upset about wealthy people, income inequality, Gini co-efficients, blah blah, hot protesters, etc. But what about the benefits of money, like being able to hide in vehicles like the Marchi Mobile eleMMent, an RV from Mars? » 10/11/11 2:00pm 10/11/11 2:00pm

Volkswagen Amarok Camper: Please Don't Blame It On The Recession

Shorty Mini Stows Inside Your RV, Should Be Great For Campground…

Why drag a car behind your bus-conversion RV when you can stow it inside? Sure, we've seen that concept before, but the Shorty Mini out-awesomes the Volkner by several orders of magnitude. » 1/31/10 3:00pm 1/31/10 3:00pm

World's Largest Work Of Art Created With Motorhome

The world’s toughest RV, built onto a Unimog U500 » 11/24/08 1:30pm 11/24/08 1:30pm chassis by Global Expedition Vehicles, is being discontinued. But, there’s two left, so well-heeled had better hurry. We’re just relieved to see we can still get airbrushed graphics on the sides; no RV should be without them.
